Thank you Robert, you're totally right ;)
But I was looking for a name for my webpage hosting the patched Rockbox
version, and have been thinking of doing these three branches ... let's see
how things are going on.
Now I'll do what I was meant to do : a patched release with some tested
patches (that means a release I post on my website won't be broken) and a
pair of new features. I've seen a lot of posts asking if the maintainer
could build a firmware with the patch he made available, and got a little
trouble when I wanted to merge them myself. Now that I've got a patched
version that really works, I'd like other RockBox users to be able to test
and use it.
My release is being called Sid, and I append the DD-MM-YY string to know
when the release has been compiled. I'll try to keep it up to date as
possible, and try to resolve patch conflicts when they happend (there aren't
lots of patches available for now, so the task is not too difficult yet). My
idea is to provide the latest official CVS source bundled witrh the latest
patches, for the end-user. And now that I've heard you developpers speaking,
it shouldn't in fact be a good idea to keep my release just next to the
official ones, because of the bug reports.
... and I just updated my release :-D
